The 24th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in — and unlike last week — WipEout: Omega Collection is no longer at the top. However, its successor is another PS4 exclusive (some might say the best PS4 exclusive) that launched much earlier this year, back in march: Horizon: Zero Dawn.

That’s right the continued price promotion of Horizon: Zero Dawn sees the action RPG from Guerrilla Games back at top with the crown on its head for only the second time this year (the previous No.1 came back in week 9 specifically).

Last week’s No.1 WipEout: Omega Collection slipped to No.5. Meanwhile, new Nintendo Switch game — one of the console’s bigger releases this year — ARMS, debuted at No.2. It’s worth noting that ARMS didn’t release until June 16th, aka one day before the end of these charts, and thus its sales didn’t really have a great deal of time to gestate.

ARMS, which is a new IP, recorded the fourth best debut week on the Switch so far this year, behind only The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, and of course the crown-daddy of them all Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Elsewhere in the Top 5, is the ever-present GTA V slotted in at the No.3 spot, and Dirt 4 in one spot lower than last week at No.4. As for other new debuts to crack the Top 40, there was only one: MotoGP 17 at No.17.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 24 2017 (the week ended on June 17th):

It’s important to note this only includes physical sales, and not digital sales.
